|By blending techniques from Set Theory and Algebraic Topology we investigate the order of any|
homeomorphism of the $n$th power of the long ray or long line $L$ having finite order, finding
all possible orders when $n=1, 2, 3$ or 4 in the first case and when $n=1$ or 2 in the second. We
also show that all finite powers of $L$ are acyclic with respect to Alexander-Spanier cohomology.
